Italian shipyard Baglietto has offered a glimpse on board the first unit in its all-new 41 metre DOM 133 series. Named Attitude, she was sold by Camper & Nicholsons last year and was delivered in August ahead of her debut at Cannes Yachting Festival.
Attitude marks the first of at least five units currently sold and under construction at the Carrara shipyard. With deliveries scheduled until 2024, Baglietto has called the new line a "roaring success".
DOM comes from the Latin word Domus meaning "home" and it is the sense of home that guided the yacht's design. "The idea of a ‘home away from home’ lies at the core of this series of mid-size, aluminium cruisers modelled around the functional and lifestyle needs of modern yacht owners," the shipyard said.
"The line presents a distinctive family feeling by combining contemporary exterior lines inspired by automotive design with generous interior volumes and extensive open-air spaces."
The first hull, Attitude, features exterior design by Stefano Vafiadis and interiors by Mexican designer Ezequiel Farca. Farca redesigned the interiors from the original sketches and adapted the layout to the owner’s requirements. "With DOM 133, this was an easy start as we basically had a white canvas and full openness from Baglietto to do so. Nonetheless, the task of fully understanding the project and aligning the owner’s requests with the vessel’s structure and shipyard guidelines (without being able to see the project from the start because of the pandemic) was challenging."
The result is a modern interpretation that makes use of light woods and linen upholstery with a variety of different textures throughout such as woven coffee tables, corrugated wood and shiny marbles.
The design of the DOM 133 is defined by a flexible, split-level beach club with an infinity pool. The pool's floor can be raised or lowered to increase the use of space in the cockpit as needed.
Other highlights include a U-shaped seating area down on the swim platform, a second pool placed on the sundeck and an interior layout that is designed to enhance the flow between the interior and exterior with the help of floor-to-ceiling windows.
The main deck aft serves as the beach club's upper tier and features loose furniture that can be configured according to the requirements of the owner with lightweight items that can be stowed when underway. Sliding glass doors lead to the main saloon finished in corrugated wood, a motif that runs throughout the vessel, with pale grey upholstery and pops of burnt orange. An L-shaped sofa sits to starboard with a formal dining table forward beneath a statement light fixture.
The upper saloon uses a light blue accent colour and is home to a large L-shaped sofa facing a television with a woven footstool/coffee table. Here, the doors can be fully opened to create a single indoor-outdoor space with the aft deck where a large al fresco dining table, bar and low-slung sofas await guests.
Attitude offers accommodation for up to 10 guests and carries a crew of nine. The master suite spans the yacht's 8.7 metre beam and benefits from its own private office and walk-in wardrobe.
Speaking at the yacht's launch earlier this year, Baglietto chief commercial officer Fabio Ermetto said: "The DOM 133 is, indeed, a project we strongly believed in from the very beginning, and its market success so far proves its value. Looking at this vessel now, in her natural element, makes us all immensely proud."
The DOM 133 is equipped with a pair of Caterpillar C32 engines delivering a top speed of 17 knots.
